Liberals Caught Breaking The Law

Will they face justice?

Top House Republicans have recently accused Democrats and the White House of encouraging unlawful activities, such as the pro-abortion-rights protests outside the houses of Supreme Court justices. 

“I’m disappointed that this White House is still encouraging people to break federal law and go and protest in front of the houses of Supreme Court justices, as Jen Psaki encouraged yesterday,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) noted during a Wednesday press conference. 

Protests outside of the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and Justice Samuel Alito, after the leak of the draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, have been referred to as illegal.

“It is unlawful — it is against the law in this country to protest a sitting judge,” said House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (N.Y.). “We want to maintain the independence of our courts. And the fact that that is being encouraged by this administration is shameful. It’s unconstitutional. It’s meant to intimidate the justices.”

However, Jen Paki, the White House press secretary on Tuesday simply urged protesters to remain peaceful. “I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date, and we certainly continue to encourage that, outside of judges’ homes. And that’s the president’s position,” Psaki noted.

Last week she also said that “peaceful protest is not extreme”. 

Still, federal law forbids “pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer

“With the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer.”

Stefanik responded to the White House comments by saying they “should outrage every single American. What makes Republicans consistent is we speak out against violent acts no matter who commits them.”

The Senate on Monday passed a bill to boost security for members of the Supreme Court and their immediate family members.
